Bam Bam has many lovely qualities. He shook for almost two days on arriving BUT then he came out of his shell quickly with me and my dog. His priorities are cuddles, food, two favorite toys and walks outside in a quiet area. He lives harmoniously with my Shar Pei who is very chilled.
He will follow me around seeking attention and affection and is somewhat playful with a low to medium energy level. Did I mention he loves to cuddle and wants to sleep in his human's bed and cuddle at night where he sleeps quietly? He is good in an environment that he is familiar and is quiet. Anything new seems to scare him.
When we go out for walks, he is reactive to dogs and people. It seems to be fear. Anything new is hard for him. He shook in the car. When my sister came over after a week of decompression, he barked at her every move.
But I know how sweet and cute he can be. He just needs a patient dog parent to build his confidence. Once he bonds with you, he will shower you with his love.
He quickly learned to do his potty business outside and is fine on the leash. I would say he needs a quiet home WITHOUT children. Someone who has time to give him the cuddles and quiet walks he loves. He might be dog selective. He would need slow proper introduction.
